ABOUT #MEACTION UK
Our movement fights for recognition, education, and research so that one day all people with ME (myalgic encephalomyelitis) will have access to rapid diagnosis, and compassionate, effective care. As people with ME, carers and allies ourselves, we campaign on the issues that are most pressing.
In Scotland, health is a devolved issue for the Scottish Parliament and covered by #MEAction Scotland.
